FOUND: WHITE GOLD RING

Sometimes you can just feel it. My wife and I decided to take a quick trip south. Naturally my DFX and scoop were the first things in the car and then we made some room of our luggage. [Hey, what is important?] We arrived and I told her that I'd see her in a little while, which she knows could be several hours.

I hit the beach and started to pound the tide line, but the tide was coming up rapidly. So I moved over to where there looked like a nice area for sunbathing. Since it was very early, I had the beach mostly to myself, and managed scoop up about 30 coins for a total of about $3.50. Then the sunbathers started to arrive so I moved over to another beach to the side, which did not look very promising, but the place looked completely empty, so why not?

After a couple of minutes with nothing I got my first hit, and there it was, a beautiful white gold ring with three aquamarine stones, and eight tiny diamonds. It certainly made the trip worthwhile.
